Holly Springs Update

The City of Holly Springs has good things going on everywhere you look, so continue reading to get caught up on all the progress.

The first exciting bit of news — the Holly Springs Train Depot is getting a makeover! The Depot has been well-loved over the years, and the time is right for it to receive a little TLC. While undergoing renovations, the Depot will be closed to the public until at least September 2023. The City contracted with Caldwell Cline Architects to ensure that exterior renovations would remain true to the history of the building while achieving a consistent look with the Town Center Project.

Renovations will include the addition of windows throughout the main meeting space, replacement of the handicapped ramp and decking, and painting of the exterior facade. The City will also expand the Depot's parking lot and add an access drive to Palm Street. We're looking forward to a fresher, brighter space for everyone to enjoy.

During January, Councilors Kevin Moore, Dee Phillips, and Kyle Whitaker were sworn in to office, following their victories during the 2022 election. The mayor's seat, as well as Wards 3 and 5, will be up for election in 2024.

You have probably seen the site work for months, and we're happy to report that the master developer for the Town Center Project, Stonecrest Homes, plans to break ground this spring on the townhomes on the west side of Palm Street near the Train Depot.

Holly Springs employees are always working hard to become experts in their fields while serving the community, and two employees' recent accomplishments deserve a moment in the spotlight. Holly Springs Police Capt. Casey Barton was selected to participate in the Cherokee Chamber of Commerce's 2023 Leadership Cherokee Class. The nine-month course will expose Capt. Barton and his classmates to the social, economic, educational, and governmental needs of the community, preparing them to be the best local leaders they can be.

Community Development Director Nancy Moon earned credentials as a certified planner from the American Institute of Certified Planners. Completion of this certification is great for her professional career and great for Holly Springs, as it shows her professionalism and commitment to ethics, skills, and knowledge in her field.
